No Bake Snickers Banana Bites

Jump To Recipe

Got a sweet tooth? You've got to try these no-bake Banana Snickers Bites! They're a healthy spin on the classic candy bar, made with just 5 ingredients, vegan and GF!

These NO BAKE Banana Snickers Bites are a healthy sweet treat that tastes like candy

It's funny how we get strange things from our parents. Like Snickers. My mom looves Snickers bars and it has always been my candy bar of choice as well.

One of my favorite ways to eat a Snickers bar is actually frozen. If you haven't tried, oh jeez, it's amazing! We used to get them when we went to the beach and it was the most refreshing treat ever. And definitely the nutritious kind of snack you want your kids to be munching on after a long day in the hot sun. KIDDING!

So rather than encourage you to eat a frozen Snickers bar, which I don't really recommend, I'm going to give you a healthy, tasty, nutritious way to enjoy this insanely delicious treat. We're making No-Bake Snickers Banana Bites!

So if we're breaking down the actual anatomy of a Snickers bar, here's what we're working with:

1. Peanut butter nougat
2. Caramel
3. Roasted Peanuts
4. Chocolate Coating

And we're replacing all four layers in our own clean way!

First up we've got the peanut butter nougat. My solution? Sliced bananas and peanut butter! Which we freeze to give that nice creamy texture!

Our next layer to worry about is caramel. Vegan caramel can be a tiny bit tricky finicky and I wanted to also give you a treat that was frozen and no bake, so we're resorting to date caramel.

We're using soaked Medjool dates which taste remarkably like caramel!

Medjool dates are amazing in no-bake desserts because they're sticky, super sweet and they usually they help to bind things together. But as a caramel? Holy deliciousness!

(plus they're packed with fiber and iron! #bonuspoints)

Final step…the chocolate!

I simply melted some dark chocolate chips together and then dunked the frozen banana bites in that melty goodness. Topped with chopped roasted peanuts for some added crunch and what do we have?

NO BAKE SNICKERS BITES! That are not only simple to make, but also healthy, naturally sweetened and with zero of the junk that traditional Snickers bars have.

Now this is a dessert that you can feel good about serving to adults, kids and everyone in between ????????

  • Add the dates into a bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Remove dates from the water (don't discard!) and add to a blender along with 2 tablespoons of the soaking liquid. Blend on high until smooth. 
  • Slice the bananas into circles about 1/8" thick. Transfer circles to a parchment lined baking sheet. 
  • Top each slice of banana with 1 teaspoon of peanut butter, followed by 1/2 teaspoon of the date caramel. Freeze for 1 hour.
  • When ready to dip, melt the chocolate chips. Carefully dip each frozen banana into the chocolate, tapping off any excess chocolate and transfer back to the baking sheet. Top with chopped peanuts and repeat until all bananas are covered. Freeze for another 1 hour before enjoying.
  • Store in the freezer for best results!

  1. These banana bites are amazing!! I will be making these all summer as my go to sweet creamy treat. They are like little ice creamy bites of heaven. ????

  2. I could not get the date caramel to work out at all! I made it in my nutribullet, but it just kind of flung the dates to the sides where they couldn’t reach the blade.

    • Hmmm I think it’s probably the nutribullet 🙁 I don’t think those are strong enough to make the caramel without potentially increasing the quantity you’re making (like doubling the recipe)!

  3. I made these for a 60th party. I took a short cut and didn’t freeze the filing before dipping it in chocolate. It probably would of been better for presentation if I did but I was short on time. I was told these are amazing but taste nothing like Snickers. The birthday girl was a health nut so I was hard pressed to have her try them. I ended up leaving them for the kids. I felt this is the healthiest version of Snickers you could get.

  4. WOW these look amazing!!! How long can these be frozen once they have been dipped in chocolate? Also, these should be served frozen, right?

    • It is, yep! With the nuts and dates the calorie count might be higher than expected, but they’re all healthy ingredients and you really only need one or two 🙂

  5. This was my first time making a chocolate-coated anything. My melted chocolate chips were too thick to be useful, so I added a bit of coconut oil to thin. After trying to coat a few, I gave up and just put a dollop of chocolate on top of each “candy”. They are in the freezer now, but I already ate one (of course). They are so delicious!!! Thank you. If you have any tips for how to coat these more easily, I’m all ears! Your video made it look so easy.

  14. These look great! I was searching your website for a written recipe for the chocolate crunch bars, but couldn’t find them (I want to pin it for later). For now, I pinned the video, but would be great if the written recipe was available. Thanks!

  15. Delicious! I have always been Team Kit Kats, but I remember nearly being converted when I tried my first Snickers! The date caramel just looks so gooey and delectable in each bite!

  16. I was wondeong where I could find the recipe for the no bake strawbery cheesecakes, and the chocolate chrunch bars. Some of the ingredients you mention the amount, but for others there is no mention. Thanks for your site, I enjoy the recipes!
